(S)-Mephenytoin is an anticonvulsive drug which is metabolized by N-demethylation and 4-hydroxylation (of the aromatic ring). (S)-Mephenytoin is a substrate of the cytochrome P450 (CYP) isoform CYP2C19, also known as mephenytoin 4-hydroxylase .
CYP2C19 is the main mephenytoin 4-hydroxylase in humans implicated in metabolizing a variety of therapeutic agents, such as omeprazole, proguanil, diazepam, propranolol, citalopram, imipramine, and certain barbiturates .
In vitro: In the presence of cytochrome b5, the Km value for S-mephenytoin was 1.25 mM with all five purified cytochrome P-450s preparations, and Vmax values were 0.8-1.25 nmol of 4-hydroxy product formed per min/nmol of P-450 .
